Physics Week 24: Introduction to dc circuit analysis

The main topics covered during week 24 in the Physics course from the Ron Paul Curriculum were: EMF, terminal voltage, resistors, resistance circuits, and Kirchhoff's law. Lesson 1: EMF: something that producing energy and an electromotive force Resistors in Series: in a series circuit the total resistance is equal to the sum of the individual … Continue reading Physics Week 24: Introduction to dc circuit analysis

Physics Week 22: Capacitance and Electrical Energy Storage

Lesson one of week 22 focused of electrical potential with a dipole, capacitance, and energy storage. Diagrams and equations were drawn out to show how all the concepts work and then a couple of practice problems followed. Dipoles occur frequently in physics and chemistry, so it was nice to see how this concept related to … Continue reading Physics Week 22: Capacitance and Electrical Energy Storage
